Sometimes when I SSH to my FreePBX box I forget to put [email protected] before the IP address. I invariably enter the correct password for [email protected] but it’s trying to log me in as non-existant user [email protected]
After three failures, FreePBX blocks additional ssh attempts by saying “connection timed out” for a period of time.
What’s the setup that’s causing this? I think I’d like to modify it to allow 3 more attempts, but more importantly be interested in adding this to other linux boxes, especially those that are exposed to the internet that aren’t using keys.
